Matthew McCormick

Matt graduated from McGill University (Montreal) in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in International Development and Economics. While studying at McGill, he became a leader in initiatives to increase access to fresh, local food on campus. As a co-manager of McGill’s student-run farm, he developed opportunities for fellow students and community members to gain applied experience in sustainable farming. As a coordinator of the university farmers’ market he created physical space for public conversations around issues of food security, health, and sustainability, while encouraging the McGill community to reconnect with local producers. 

Matt now lives in Winnipeg, where he coordinates a farmers’ market and works on a small, spray-free vegetable farm just outside the city.
